THE LAST END Vision of the Prophet Daniel (Part 2)

From the Philadelphia News, on page 1 of the May 2011 issue Mr. Gerald Flurry gave a sobering warning to all the ministers and members of the Philadelphia Church of God:

1150 days: God’s warning to the PCG!

On March 11 of this year (2011) – the anniversary of the end of the 1150 days – a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit Japan. I BELIEVE GOD IS SPECIFICALLY WARNING THE PCG – AND REMINDING US OF WHAT WE HAVE TO DO!…

March 11 this year was a critical day. I think it reinforced the importance of the end of that 1150 days, and reminded us – as we are prone to forget…

That 1150 days was a nightmare: people turning from God and the truth being cast to the ground. Then God supplied the ANSWER – in the form of an URGENT MESSAGE!

THESE MARCH 11 EVENTS ARE LIKE FLASHING RED LIGHT FOR THIS CHURCH! They are a warning… God is warning you in these events! He’s warning me! We must get our minds on this message, or we’re going no place spiritually. (p. 1, Vol. 21, No. 4)

We have already discussed the vision of the prophet Daniel in chapter 8 concerning the LAST END that involved the RAM and the HE-GOAT – Garner Ted Armstrong and Joseph W. Tkach Sr. The whole vision in chapter 8 is actually just an overview of the history of God’s Church in this end time that covers the latter years of the Philadelphia era and the transition going to the Laodicean era.

2300 DAYS: THE VISION OF THE EVENING AND THE MORNING

Now let’s continue with the LAST END vision of the evening and the morning that covers “many days”

And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be… And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. (Daniel 8:19, 26)

If you will notice that Jesus Christ appeared as a man before the prophet Daniel as he was along the river of Ulai (verse 2)

And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. (Daniel 8:15-16)

Jesus Christ commanded the angel Gabriel to make Daniel to understand the vision concerning the LAST END. And what is it that Daniel saw?

Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Daniel 8:13-14)

The vision that Daniel saw was about the sanctuary or God’s Church being cleansed. These verses have already been explained in the Book of Remembrance:

Since the sacrifices are done twice daily, so the 2,300 evenings and mornings is equal to 1,150 days. And according to Mr. Flurry in his Daniel booklet, this prophecy has come to pass and it did refer to a 1,150 day period after Mr. Armstrong’s death on January 16, 1986 – before Malachi’s Message was revealed to him on March 11, 1989. The daily was stopped for 1,150 days, and at the end of it, the sanctuary was cleansed starting initially with Mr. Flurry.

But notice very carefully: Ancient Israel was commanded by God to offer sacrifices on the altar on a daily basis, TWO LAMBS that are a year old – one in the morning and another one in the evening. This account is written in Exodus 29:38-42;

“Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar; two lambs of the first year day by day continually. The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer at even: And with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering. And the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, and shalt do thereto according to the meat offering of the morning, and according to the drink offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto the LORD. This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD: where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee.”

These verses suggest that the fulfillment of the 1,150 day period is DUAL – which is indeed 2,300 evenings and mornings!–1,150 EVENINGS and 1,150 MORNINGS: “AND THE OTHER LAMB THOU SHALT OFFER AT EVEN, AND SHALT DO THERETO ACCORDING TO THE MEAT OFFERING OF THE MORNING.”…

(Mr. Armstrong and Mr. Flurry) are more like a type of the two lambs that were offered in the continual in God’s temple – “The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer at even.”

So as already proven from the Book of Remembrance, there will have to be a SECOND FULFILLMENT of the 1,150 days:

Notice also that it is not only the daily that is concerned in this vision but also “the transgression of desolation” – “How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, AND the transgression of desolation…?” This relates to verse 23; “when the transgressors are come to the full.”

So the 2,300 evenings and mornings could most probably be referring to a TWO-1,150 day time period. The fulfillment of the 1,150 day prophecy could be DUAL, which amounts to a total of 2,300 evenings and mornings…

When shall this second 1,150 day period begin? It began when the house of God (Armstrong Auditorium) was COMPLETED and inaugurated on September 5, 2010 – which coincided with the 6th year death anniversary of the wife of That Prophet. The construction and completion of the Armstrong Auditorium in Edmond, Oklahoma is to be a specific sign for the SECOND fulfillment of 1,150 days– the evening sacrifice…

Mr. Flurry explained the vision God gave the prophet Daniel about the evening and the morning – which comprise the last end:

Daniel didn’t understand this vision God was giving him. God sent the archangel Gabriel to Daniel to explain (verses 15-16). “Understand, O son of man,” Gabriel said, “for at the time of the end shall be the vision” (verse 17)…

In verse 26 of chapter 8, Daniel writes, “And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days.” Today we are right in the midst of it. This is happening in God’s temple. This whole vision is about God’s Church right now—the last end. Daniel is trying to get us to see the kind of warfare going on behind the scenes.

This is the only time of salvation for those members called into the Church of God today. Judgment is now on us. If we fail this time, there is no second chance.

God gets very specific with this prophecy. It’s carefully planned to the very day!… (Daniel Unsealed At Last!, p. 30)

For emphasis, Mr. Gerald Flurry wrote that “This whole vision is about God’s Church right now—the last end” and we are right in the midst of it as it happens in God ‘s Church. 

2300 days.png

This second 1,150 day fulfillment was from September 5, 2010 to October 29, 2013. And this date October 29, 2013 was the day when the LAST END website was launched which coincided with the annual celebration of Cyrus the Great day!

Cyrus the Great Day or Cyrus Day, October 29 (7th of Aban) is the anniversary of the entrance of Cyrus into Babylon. It is named the day of Cyrus The Great by “Save Pasargard” Institute, but is not registered in any national or international calendar. Cyrus the Great was the first King of Persia, who declared the first charter of human rights in the world, also known as the Cyrus Cylinder. In October 539 BCE, the Persian king Cyrus took Babylon, the ancient capital of an oriental empire covering modern Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel. Several texts describe this event. In the Nabonidus Chronicle, for instance, is written that in the month of Arahsamna, the third day (29 October), Cyrus entered Babylon.

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrus_the_Great_Day

Well what’s with Cyrus the Great? Would there be any kind of connection to the work God gave to Mr. Gerald Flurry? Actually there is, on September 4, 2004, Mr. Gerald Flurry gave a sermon entitled, “The Tree of Life and God’s House” in which he said,

“God’s gonna use, I believe, there’s certain symbolism there to tell us, He’s gonna use carnal minded men to help this work done. If that’s what we need, we’ll get the help. If it’s like building God’s house or doing this work, God will give us the help, even if He has to take a carnal minded man and anoint him – He’ll do it because He already said He’s gonna do it, ‘I will raise up the ruins as in the days of old’. God forbid that we should not believe that! God forbid.”

Do we believe what God’s prophet said? Do we believe that God will use and anoint Gentiles to help His work done? Mr. Flurry gave that sermon a day before his wife died on September 5, 2004 of a CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE. What does that mean? It means that early on, God has already been planning to use Gentiles to help finish His work in this last end because the Philadelphia Church of God being pictured by the condition of Mrs. Barbara Flurry is sick unto death that it cannot continue doing so.

The context of this Gentile work which is directly connected to Cyrus the Great will have to be helping God to build His spiritual house. This Gentile work has also been commissioned by God to raise up the ruins as in the days of old. This is being fulfilled primarily through the Book of Remembrance in which we can read from its very first pages:

This book is dedicated to the memory of Gerald Flurry’s wife, Barbara Jeanne Flurry, who died on September 5, 2004.

Noticed the connection of the two 1,150 days prophecy? Let’s go back to Daniel’s LAST END vision:

Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the DAILY sacrifice, and the TRANSGRESSION OF DESOLATION, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Daniel 8:13-14)

The FIRST 1,150 days concerns the DAILY while SECOND 1,150 days concerns the TRANSGRESSION OF DESOLATION, yet BOTH the sanctuary (God’s Church) and the host (ministers) are to be trodden under foot.

The DAILY or God’s work has been taken away after Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong died on January 16, 1986. The Tkaches

Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast downAnd an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered. (Daniel 8:11-12)

Then 1,150 days later, on March 11, 1989 God began the cleansing process in His Church through the revelation in the book of Malachi that He gave to Mr. Gerald Flurry.

How about this “transgression of desolation”? What is this really all about? Let’s understand. The word “transgression” can also mean “rebellion”; while “desolation” can also mean “to destroy self”

So “transgression of desolation” would mean REBELLION TO DESTROY SELF. This  would be the context of the SECOND fulfillment of the 1,150 days.

REBELLION TO DESTROY SELF

What is this REBELLION TO DESTROY SELF mean? Do the PCG members not even wonder why the wife of That Prophet became sick unto death with a CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE even it was only a few months after the six year court battle against the Worldwide Church of God? God used her ailment to picture the spiritual condition of the PCG. What could the problem be? Remember that the six year court battle was concluded on January 16, 2003 but sometime on December 2003, it was announced that Mrs. Barbara Flurry was in a critical condition.

What could have happened between January to December 2003? To answer that, let’s consider first the prophetic significance of what happened to Mrs. Barbara Flurry:

In the Daniel – Unsealed at Last booklet, Mr. Flurry wrote:

“Now as he was speaking with me,” Daniel wrote, “I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright. And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be” (vv. 18-19). This all unfolds in the “last end” – end of the end time, as we have often said. We are in that time! Notice it says, ‘for at the time appointed the end shall be.’ The time appointed at the ‘last end’ means the 1,150 days” (p. 30-31).

Read that again! THE TIME APPOINTED AT THE “LAST END” MEANS THE 1,150 DAYS! There is indeed a dual fulfillment of the 1,150 days! We cannot fully understand the last end of the indignation until the other part of the 1,150 days is fulfilled. And we are in the midst of it!

To reinforce our understanding regarding the fulfillment of the duality of the 1,150 days, let’s consider the vision in Zechariah 5:

“Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.” (vv. 1-2)

According to Mr. Flurry, in Zechariah: The Sign of Christ’s Imminent Return; this flying scroll pertains to the little book, Malachi’s Message (revealed to Mr. Flurry after 1,150 days from Mr. Armstrong’s death). While in the latter part of the chapter it discusses yet another vision – that of building a house for God in the land of Shinar, (i.e. to say, in Edmond, Oklahoma)

“Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth. And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth. And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah. And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.” (Zech. 5:5-8)

The “talent of lead,” according to Clarke’s Commentary, means GOD’S DISPLEASURE WITH WICKEDNESS, which is the same terminology with that found in Daniel 8:19’s word “indignation”: GOD’S DISPLEASURE WITH SIN. And notice very carefully, that this “talent of lead” is connected to “a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah” – the Church (symbolized by the woman) is being measured.

Let’s look at how God measured the woman. ‘And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof’ (Zechariah 5:8). God finds wickedness in this church. God is very displeased with this measurement.” (p.52, op. cit.)

Have we seen a woman in this end-time that was emphatically used by God to show His views about His Church being measured, even after only about 20 months from the court case victory on January 16, 2003? From the Philadelphia News, Nov/Dec 2004, we read:

September 5 marked a dramatic day in the history of God’s Church. On that day – 40 months after the beginning of the ‘last hour’ – Barbara Jeanne Flurry died. …I believe my wife was, in a sense, a MARTYR. Five years ago, God revealed more to me about the book of Ezekiel, now contained in Ezekiel – The End-Time Prophet. This booklet explained how Ezekiel’s prophecies are specifically about OUR WORK TODAY… Ezekiel 24:16 reads, ‘Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep, neither shall thy tears run down’…

In verse 19, the people asked Ezekiel what it all meant. He responded with God’s message: ‘Then I answered them, The word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Speak unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will profane my sanctuary, the excellency of your strength, the desire of your eyes, and that which your soul pitieth; and your sons and your daughters whom ye have left shall FALL BY THE SWORD (verses 20-21)…

My wife GLORIFIED God in her death. She witnessed for Him. (pp. 1, 8;)

Source: The Last End – A Book of Remembrance pages 59-60

Notice the first vision in Zechariah chapter 5 (verse 1) involved the flying scroll or Malachi’s Message – that’s the FIRST 1,150 days; while the conclusion of this same chapter (verse 11) is about a house being built in Shinar which Mr. Flurry wrote as pertaining to Armstrong Auditorium that was inaugurated on September 5, 2010 – the beginning of the SECOND 1,150 days.

And remember this physical construction is in the context of GOD’S DISPLEASURE WITH WICKEDNESS inside His own Church as prophesied in Zechariah chapter 5! This is the same vision concerning the “transgression of desolation” or REBELLION TO DESTROY SELF that the prophet Daniel saw in chapter 8.

This REBELLION TO DESTROY SELF is actually the same prophesied Ezekiel 4 siege or better known as the NO CONTACT POLICY. We have already proven how the death of Mrs. Flurry is directly connected to the Ezekiel 4 siege which is still happening right now inside the PCG.

For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. (Ezekiel 4:5)

We already know the explanation of the first fulfillment of this 390 day prophecy in the Book of Remembrance in terms of days being years when Jeroboam CAUSED ISRAEL TO SIN through his DECISION. And what DECISION was that?

And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan. And he made an house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi. (1 Kings 12:30-31)

Jeroboam “made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi” – he changed the ADMINISTRATION or MANAGEMENT OF GOD’S GOVERNMENT! He inducted into the office of a priest those which God has not approved to become priests unto Him. That DECISION of Jeroboam as explained in the Book of Remembrance in 975 BC led to the 585 BC siege of Jerusalem 390 years later.

The significance of that DECISION eventually led to the first fulfillment of the 70 weeks prophecy as explained in the Book of Remembrance:

Ezekiel 4 timeline.png

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. (Daniel 9:24-25)

This was how the street has been built which is 49 years from the 457 B.C. decree given by King Artaxerxes on his seventh year reign in the year 457 B.C. as written in Ezra 7:7-28.

From the Book of Remembrance:

In 408 B.C, Nehemiah’s visit to Jerusalem the SECOND TIME corresponded exactly with the prophecy written by the prophet Malachi.

The abuses which Malachi mentions in his writings correspond so exactly with those which Nehemiah found on his 2nd visit to Jerusalem.

(Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malachi)

While in Lange’s Commentary, here’s what is written:

(W)e find Malachi condemning the very same abuses, which Nehemiah found existing in his second visit to Jerusalem, we may reasonably conclude, that they were contemporaries, and sustain the same relations to each other.

Read the rest in the Book of Remembrance. This is the fulfillment of “THE STREET SHALL BE BUILT AGAIN” or it can be rendered as, “THE STREET SHALL BE REBUILT.” The STREET then is pertaining to the PRIESTHOOD. This can be further proven during King Hezekiah’s reign:

Hezekiah began to reign when he was five and twenty years old, and he reigned nine and twenty years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Abijah, the daughter of Zechariah. And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that David his father had done. He in the first year of his reign, in the first month, opened the doors of the house of the Lord, and repaired them. And he brought in the priests and the Levites, and gathered them together into the east STREETAnd said unto them, Hear me, ye Levites, sanctify now yourselves, and sanctify the house of the Lord God of your fathers, and carry forth the filthiness out of the holy place. (2 Chronicles 29:1-5)

The STREET has been associated with the PRIESTHOOD. And the message God gave to the prophet Malachi on 408 BC during Nehemiah’s second visit was to RESTORE or REBUILD them, the same way when King Hezekiah admonished the priests to sanctify themselves. That same priesthood later developed through time into a group called the Sadducees. Let’s read about them from the Book of Remembrance:

Now, let us include the group of the Sadducees because this group as it appears were the same chief priests who influenced Judas to betray Jesus Christ. Let’s consider the Jewish Enclopedia again and you will be utterly shocked:

SADDUCEES:

Name from High Priest Zadok.

Name given to the party representing views and practises of the Law and interests of Temple and priesthood directly opposite to those of the Pharisees. The singular form, “Ẓadduḳi”, is an adjective denoting “an adherent of the Bene Ẓadoḳ,” the descendants of Zadok, the high priests who, tracing their pedigree back to Zadok, the chief of the priesthood in the days of David and Solomon, formed the Temple hierarchy all through the time of the First and Second Temples down to the days of Ben Sira but who degenerated under the influence of Hellenism, especially during the rule of the Seleucidæ, when to be a follower of the priestly aristocracy was tantamount to being a worldly-minded Epicurean

(Source: http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/12989-sadducees)

From another source we could read:

The Sadducees take their name from the priest Zadok who supported Solomon against Adonijah when he attempted to appoint himself King of Israel. (See the 1st chapter of 1st Chronicles.) …While the Sadducees were few in number, their control of the Temple, along with their wealth, gave them an important position of authority within… the Sanhedrin. 

The word Sanhedrin refers to a religious court…

At the trial of Jesus before the elders of Israel … (t)he outcome was inevitable, especially because of the threat Jesus posed to the Sadducees.

In their view, this man was an unparalleled danger standing in direct contradiction to their theology across the board. …Thus, in their own self-interest, the Sadducees, more so than the Pharisees (some of whom certainly did want Jesus dead), forced the issue of trying and slaying Jesus.

Evidence of this can be seen in the fact that the Sadducees, and not the Pharisees…

  • Arranged with Judas to betray Christ (Matt. 26)
  • Set a guard at the tomb (Matt. 27)
  • Arrested the apostles (Acts 5)
  • Gave letters to Paul authorizing the persecution of the church in Damascus (Acts 9)

(Source: http://www.centralcal.com/crist2.htm)

…And which group claims to be the SONS OF ZADOK?

Sons of Zadok is just another way of saying the Philadelphians today. Like Zadok, these individuals stay with the key of David. They hold on to the understanding about David’s throne. (The Key of David, p. 57)

Source: The Last End – A Book of Remembrance

As for the fulfillment of the WALL in Daniel’s 70 week prophecy, it has already been explained in the Book of Remembrance who those people are:

Let’s consider the Jewish Encyclopedia for more information about the Pharisees:

PHARISEES (Aramaic, “Perishaya”; Hebr. “Perushim”):

“Perisha” (the singular of “Perishaya”) denotes “one who separates himself,” or keeps away from persons or things impure, in order to attain the degree of holiness and righteousness required in those who would commune with God

On the whole, however, they added new restrictions to the Biblical law in order to keep the people at a safe distance from forbidden ground; as they termed it, THEY MADE A FENCE AROUND THE LAW.

(Source: http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/12087-pharisees)

Did you see that? The Pharisees during Christ’s earthly ministry “MADE A FENCE AROUND THE LAW!” Is this not the specific fulfillment of the prophesied IRON WALL of Ezekiel 4? Let’s continue from the previous source to see one of the characteristics of that IRON WALL:

The Pharisees also favored the rich over the poor because of the prevailing attitude that poverty was a sign of the curse of God, while prosperity was believed to show the approval of God on one’s life

The attitude sometimes carried over into the Sanhedrin’s legislative abilities, and so the Pharisees were known on occasion to abuse the right given them under the Law of Moses to enact laws clarifying points that the greater Law did not directly address. This had the effect, in some cases, of subverting the principles of the Law to favor those of wealth and power, something Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for. (op. cit.)

Can we find a similar situation in this last end which portrays a scenario wherein the ministers in God’s Church favor the rich over the poor and even brand those in poverty as under a curse from God? So many poor people in the Philadelphia Church of God around the world could relate to that and have so many stories to tell of their own experiences in the hands of these spiritual Pharisees.

Apparently, the Sadducees and the Pharisees made up the priesthood in Jerusalem during Christ’s ministry (emphasis mine in bold):

Many priests belonged to the Sadducees according to Josephus,11 but not all priests were Sadducees. The New Testament shows a close association between the Priests and the Sadducees (Acts 4:1 and 5:17). According to Josephus, Ananus, a Sadducee, had five sons who all became High Priests. While it is probable that the members of the priestly aristocracy were Sadducees, many priests were Pharisees. It was the priests of the Pharisees who were sent to question John (Jn. 1:19-24). And according to Acts 23, both Sadducees and Pharisees made up the Sanhedrin because Paul rallied the members who were Pharisees to his side.

Source: https://bible.org/seriespage/3-sadducees

So the STREET and the WALL in Daniel chapter 9’s prophecy are actually referring to the PRIESTHOOD which were composed of the SADDUCEES and the PHARISEES! The prophet Daniel prophesied of them in his famous and least understood 70 week prophecy. These groups of people are a prophecy in this Laodicean era specifically being fulfilled by the Philadelphia Church of God ministry.

These last end Sadducees and Pharisees in the PCG were the ones who set up the REBELLION TO DESTROY THEMSELVES through the NO CONTACT POLICY.

THAT DETERMINED

Now let’s go back to the prophecy in Daniel  chapter 9:

Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. (Daniel 9:25)

There’s another perspective for the word “wall” which can precisely describe what the Sadducees had done to the Messiah, Jesus Christ. In the original Hebrew is transliterated as “charuts” (read as khaw-roots)

  • A trench (as dug), gold (as mined), a threshing sledge (having sharp teeth);
  • (Figuratively) DETERMINATION; also EAGER: -DECISION, wall

The word “determination” in the dictionary;

  • The act of making or arriving at a decision 
  • The decision or pronouncement made.
  • the act or an instance of ending an argument by the opinion or decision of an authority
  • the decision reached by a court of justice on a disputed matter
  • the act of coming to a decision or of resolving something.
  • the settlement of a dispute, question, etc., as by authoritative or judicial decision.
  • the decision or settlement arrived at or pronounced.
  • an authoritative or official decision, especially one made by a court
  • something worked out to explain, resolve, or provide a method for dealing with and settling a problem:

So this WALL in verse 25 has got to do with A DETERMINATION or A DECISION. As defined, it has got to do with “a decision reached by a court of justice on a disputed matter.” It can also mean “something worked out to explain, resolve, or provide a method for dealing with and settling a problem.” During the final years of Christ’s ministry there was a DETERMINATION or A DECISION that has been made over a disputed matter. Let’s read it from the Book of Remembrance:

In the final year in Christ’s ministry prior to the Passover of 31 AD, the chief priests (Sadducees) and the Pharisees have gathered together in a council for a plot to destroy and kill Christ.

John 11:47-53 – “Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest THAT SAME YEAR, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest THAT YEAR, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

Notice carefully that it is very important to take note of what happened on THAT SAME YEAR, THAT YEAR – when the high priest Caiaphas uttered the specific prophetic fulfillment of Daniel 9:26;

“And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.”

Source: The Last End – A Book of Remembrance

Notice the word “DETERMINED” that is connected to the original Hebrew of the word WALL in verse 25 which means DETERMINATION. From that 30 A.D. DETERMINATION made by Caiaphas, the 40 years fulfillment of the Ezekiel 4 siege began.

This Jewish High Priest Caiaphas, played a prominent role in Jesus’ crucifixion. It was Caiaphas who wanted to sacrifice Christ in the interests of “expediency.” He declared “it’s expedient …that one man [Jesus] die …and NOT the whole [Jewish] nation perish” (John 11:50).

His words were prophetic, but prophecy wasn’t Caiaphas’ intention.  This was how Caiaphas want to settle the problem. This was how he wanted to resolve the dispute. This was his determination as the word “wall” implies.

Jesus’ soaring popularity risked heavy-handed Roman military intervention. So in Caiaphas’ mind, he thought of eliminating Jesus Christ to maintain the status quo. As a leading Sadducee in that status quo, Caiaphas’ family enjoyed the wealth, power, position and prestige.

Caiaphas married the daughter of Annas, another high priest (John 18:13). The match was probably arranged years before the wedding, as both families would have wanted to be sure that they were making a good alliance. Both Annas and Caiaphas belonged to the powerful sect of the Sadducees (Acts 5:17).

Caiaphas and the other chief priests who dominated the Sanhedrin of the time were depicted to have interrogated Jesus Christ (Matthew 26:57-67).

The Roman governor, Pontius Pilate was pressured into doing the council’s “dirty work” to crucify Jesus Christ. Later, Caiaphas led the campaign to stamp out the infant church in Jerusalem. (Acts 4:6)

The Bible’s portrait of Caiaphas is quite clear – he was the foremost antagonist against Jesus Christ and the fledgling Christian Church. As written in Wikipedia:

Joseph Caiaphas, known simply as Caiaphas (Hebrew: יהוסף בר קיפא);(Greek: Καϊάφας) in the New Testament, was the Jewish high priest who is said to have organized the plot to kill Jesus. Caiaphas is also said to have been involved in the Sanhedrin trial of Jesus.[1] According to the Gospel accounts, Caiaphas was the most hostile enemy of Jesus.

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caiaphas

Caiaphas viewed Jesus as a dangerous mob rouser. One instance can be found written by Luke:

Jesus went into the temple [enclosure] and began driving out those who were selling, saying to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer’; but you have made it a robbers’ den (or ROBBER’S CAVE).” (Luke 19:45-46, Amplified Bible Translation)

We know already for a fact who associate themselves with ROBBERS CAVE. The PCG even made ROBBERS CAVE its landmark. So this is another connection who the last end Sadducees are, just like Caiaphas.

Some historians believe that those temple markets were owned by the house of Annas which would be another reason why Caiaphas tried to silence Jesus Christ.

Jewish chief priests and older men gathered at Caiaphas’ home to discuss how to seize and kill the Messiah. Caiaphas had a hand in determining with Judas Iscariot the price for Jesus’ betrayal (Matthew 26:3, 4, 14, 15). Executions had to be approved by the Romans. As intermediary between them and the Jews, Caiaphas was the one who presented the case to Pilate. When Pilate sought to free Jesus, Caiaphas was among the chief priests who shouted: “Crucify him, crucify him!” (John 19:4-6)

Caiaphas even urged the crowds to clamor for the release of a murderer instead of Jesus and was among those chief priests who hypocritically proclaimed: “We have no king but Caesar.” (John 19:15; Mark 15:7-11). This was the actual fulfillment of Daniel 9:26

And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (Daniel 9:26)

Take note of the phrase “the people of the prince” and let’s focus on this PRINCE. Who is this PRINCE? It was actually Caiaphas! For a more clear rendition of verse 26, let’s read from the Book of Remembrance:

Paraphrasing what the prophet Daniel wrote in verse 26: “And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the chief priests (i.e., Caiaphas) and the Pharisees that shall come shall pervert and contaminate the city with lies and false accusations against Him which shall corrupt, weaken, and disintegrate the saints; and the end result shall be a tumultuous overwhelming outrage of the people to destroy the Messiah, and unto the end of the controversy and conflict about the Messiahship of Jesus Christ, an overwhelming grief, shock, wonder and astonishment are determined.”

The prophecy about the WALL in verse 25 which actually means the DECISION as prophesied in John 11:47-53 was the fulfillment of the prophecy in Ezekiel 4 as explained in the Book of Remembrance.

Caiaphas was comparable to an impregnable wall that his determination and decision would always revolve around rejecting anything and everything about the work of God through Jesus. He even rejected the evidence of Jesus’ resurrection. He opposed Peter and John and then Stephen. Caiaphas also authorized Saul (who later became Paul) to arrest any Christians whom he might find in Damascus including Stephen. (Matthew 28:11-13; Acts 4:1-17; 6:8–7:60; 9:1, 2)

Caiaphas was right there during the consummation of the 70 week prophecy in 34 AD since his reign started on 18 AD up to 36 AD.

And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people… And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council, And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel. (Acts 6:8, 12, 15)

Then said the high priest, Are these things so? (Acts 7:1)

Again, this HIGH PRIEST is NONE OTHER THAN CAIAPHAS. He was the PRINCE mentioned in Daniel 9:26

With that story being told, is it just a coincidence that God brought the Remembrancers to the Priestly quarters of Jerusalem in Mount Zion? Of course NOT! God has put the Remembrancers in that exact spot for a purpose.

From Haaretz:

Archaeologists Uncover Life of Luxury in 2,000-year-old Priestly Quarters of Jerusalem

Luxuries, like a bathtub, signal that the 2000-year old house being dug up in Mt. Zion, near Caiaphas’ home, belonged to a member of the ruling class.

Philippe Bohstrom Jul 12, 2016 4:55 PM

Archaeologists excavating in the heart of ancient Jerusalem have begun to uncover the neighborhood that housed the elite 2,000 years ago – most probably the priestly ruling class.

One of the houses had its own cistern, a mikveh (a Jewish ritual bathing pool), a barrel-vaulted ceiling and a chamber with three bread ovens.

Inside a room found with its ceiling intact was a bathtub – an extremely rare luxury that commoners of the time could not afford.

Bathtubs, as opposed to ritual dipping pools, have so far only been found at King Herod’s palaces in Masada and Jericho, and in the so-called “Priestly Mansion” in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem.

“It’s clear from the finds that the people living here were wealthy, aristocrats or perhaps even priests,” Prof. Shimon Gibson, co-director of the excavations, told Haaretz.

A ritual stone cup with a priestly inscription, used for purification rituals, also found there supports the archaeologist’s theory that this area was the Priestly Quarter of ancient Jerusalem.

“Caiaphas’ house has been located. It’s up on the hill not far from our site,” Gibson points out in additional support of the thesis.

“We know from pilgrim reports that Caiaphas’s house was in this area. The Armenian site is just up the hill from our site, the Roman Catholic site Peter Gallicanu is just below,” Prof. James Tabor of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte told Haaretz. “Caiaphas was the son-in-law of Annas, who had six sons who were high priests. He ran the show for about 60 years putting his sons in one after the other, and his  son-in-law, Caiaphas along the way. So perhaps these are the homes of that extended priestly dynasty,” Tabor said.

The high priests at that time were notorious, with a reputation for being corrupt, brutal and greedy. We learn this not only from the Gospel accounts but from Talmudic texts telling how the high priest used to beat the people with sticks (Pesachim 57a, Pp.284-285). Josephus gives us a similarly grim account, coining the high priest a “hoarder of money” (Josephus – Antiquities of the Jews 20.9.2-4: “But as for the high priest, Ananias, he increased in glory every day, and this to a great degree, and had obtained the favor and esteem of the citizens in a signal manner; for he was a great hoarder up of money”)

Why did God allow His Remembrancers to participate in an archaeological dig that uncovers the priestly house of Caiaphas and Annas’ family? Aside from exposing this evil family of high priests for all the world to see, another reason is that, God is showing us that a duality is being fulfilled in this last end – there’s another high priest leading other priests or ministers who is likened to Caiaphas being comparable to an impregnable wall. Consider one comment from a PCG member which was registered in a blog site that revealed the PCG ministers’ DETERMINATION and DECISION to reject anything and everything about the work of God through the Book of Remembrance. How? By instructing their members to BURN it.

Comments from Armstrongism blogspot_1.png

Let’s go back to the prophecy of that impregnable wall in Ezekiel chapter 4 to see who this Caiaphas-like high priest who makes critical DECISIONS in this last end:

Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face against it, and it shall be besieged, and thou shalt lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the house of Israel… For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. (Ezekiel 4:3, 5)

The first fulfillment of this 390 day prophecy has already been explained in the Book of Remembrance in terms of days being years when Jeroboam CAUSED ISRAEL TO SIN through his DECISION. And what was his DECISION?

And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan. And he made an house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi. (1 Kings 12:30-31)

Jeroboam “made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi” – he changed the ADMINISTRATION or MANAGEMENT OF GOD’S GOVERNMENT! He inducted into the office of a priest those which God has not approved to become priests unto Him. That DECISION of Jeroboam as explained in the Book of Remembrance in 975 BC led to the 585 BC siege of Jerusalem 390 years later.

The duality of this 390 days began on August 12, 2003 when Stephen Flurry MADE A DECISION to make some changes on the Mystery of the Ages book. The same way as Jeroboam did, he also changed the ADMINISTRATION or MANAGEMENT OF GOD’S GOVERNMENT! Here’s a excerpt from the Book of Remembrance concerning this decision:

Reading some excerpts from that same PGR under the CHURCH ADMINISTRATION section, will give us an overview of how the Ezekiel 4 siege was set up:

CHANGES TO MYSTERY OF THE AGES

by Stephen Flurry

The sentence we removed from our 2003 version is found on page 245 of the older one, where it said, “No prophets are mentioned as having either ADMINISTRATIVE, executive or preaching functions in the New Testament Church.”

We removed that sentence from the 2003 version, not because we are doing away with Mr. Armstrong’s teachings, but because of what God has added to the Church since Mr. Armstrong died—the revealed truth that there is, in fact, a prophet guiding the Church today who also serves an ADMINISTRATIVE and executive position within the Church. God did not reveal this to Mr. Armstrong before he died, just as He didn’t reveal the specifics about the Laodicean rebellion—for obvious reasons…

Now we could have attempted to write another section to be included in Mystery of the Ages that would reflect this new revelation, but we felt it best to preserve the text as closely as possible to the original and simply strike that sentence and then let our other literature, like That Prophet, reflect the Church’s new teaching on the subject.

In fact, the next time we print Mystery of the Ages, we will also cut a parenthetical phrase found on page 350 —one that we overlooked last year. Again, in reference to the position of prophet, Mr. Armstrong wrote, “of which there are none in God’s Church today since the Bible for our time is complete.” (ibid., pp. 3-4)

Source: The Last End – A Book of Remembrance

Remember when the changes in Mystery of the Ages happened. It happened sometime in 2003. We have already explained how the Book of Remembrance was dedicated to the memory of Mrs. Barbara Flurry and how her death is connected to the Ezekiel 4 siege. Stephen Flurry got his hands to make the changes on Mystery of the Ages on August 12, 2003. This is SEVEN MONTHS from the time the PCG got the rights to print Mystery of the Ages on January 16, 2003, and three hundred ninety days later from August 12, 2003, her mother died of a congestive heart failure on September 5, 2004.

Ten years later from that time when he made changes to Mystery of the Ages, on August 10, 2013, Stephen made another critical DECISION which he posted in his own Twitter account. He was DETERMINED to leave the Jerusalem work and his DECISION was to go instead to Edstone in Warwickshire, England. Thus, Stephen fulfilled the prophesied Joshua the high priest who was bound by Satan the devil in the context of Jerusalem which the Eternal has chosen (Zechariah 3:1-2).

Stephen Flurry said goodbye to Jerusalem.png

BECOMING CULTURED OR BECOMING PERFECT, WHICH?

God allowed Satan to bound this last end Joshua because of that DECISION to leave the Jerusalem work. In his Trumpet Daily Radio Show, aired on August 18, 2016, entitled, “Become You Therefore Cultured,” Stephen Flurry has made some very shocking statements that further prove of Satan’s influence on him:

When we moved to England 19 months ago one of my personal goals was to become more of a cultured individual. I mean we were leaving behind a pretty cultural center as far as God’s Church is concerned there in Edmond Oklahoma you have God’s house and they got the beautiful concert series really bringing in some of the more culturally sophisticated performers in the world. But going from there to Britain of course there was an exciting change in itself thinking about Britain of course and all of this rich illustrious history, the British empire, the greatest empire in world history. And the city of London of course the home of David’s throne.

And then right down the road on Edstone we have Stratford Upon Avon, which is the birthplace of William Shakespeare. When you talk about a very royal and culturally enlightened land, we are certainly right here in the midst of it. So, when we got here 19 months ago I really had the passion to read up on more of the British history and of course I wanted to see as many museums and castles and palaces and over this past many months, we’ve definitely done that.

We saw the British museum again for the second time just the last week with all the campers that were here and the British library we’ve been to a couple of castles and palaces. I certainly wanted to see the jewels, see the throne, see the abbey, see the stone. I wanted to see some Shakespeare plays live if at all possible. I just wanted to absorb British culture to further my education, to become more refined, to become more a cultured individual

Stephen does not want any of the Jewish culture in Jerusalem, that’s why he left the work there and instead went to Edstone in Warwickshire, England to absorb more of the British culture to further his education, i.e., “to become more a cultured individual” by seeing “some Shakespeare plays live if at all possible.” Further on, he uttered a very shocking statement:

What is the meaning, the purpose of life? What are the true values? What is the right way to live? The way to peace happiness, prosperity, security, the comfortable introspect, enjoyable and abundant life. Just what is the way? And where is the balance? As he said there you have one extreme or the other typically. And yet the more cultured and refined we are or we become, the more we’ll find that perfect balance. God is the example.

Is being cultured really the same as being perfect? Let us define those two words:

Culture in the dictionary means:

  • Mental refinement and sophisticated taste resulting from the appreciation of the arts and sciences
  • the artistic and social pursuits, expression, and tastes valued by a society or class, as in the arts, manners, dress, etc
  • a quality of enlightenment or refinement arising from an acquaintance with and concern for what is regarded as excellent in the arts, letters, manners, etc.
  • enlightenment and excellent taste resulting from intellectual development:
  • having or showing good education, tastes and manners
  • grown or made under controlled condition
  • produced under artificial conditions
  • the TOTAL PRODUCT of human creativity and intellect:

How does God define PERFECTION?

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. (Hebrews 2:9-10)

Character means to do that which is RIGHT. Yet that DECISION of Stephen Flurry is a CLEAR CONTRAST to what he believed before – he did not do that which is right in God’s eyes. Look at what he wrote in the Royal Vision – March/April 2005 contrary to what he is saying now:

Perfect Through Suffering

Why did God feel it was necessary that His Son endure all that agony? Well, look at what it accomplished. “For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through suffering” (Hebrews 2:10, RSV). That’s an AMAZING statement: Christ became perfect through SUFFERING! He would not be the God He is — He would not be able to fulfill the responsibilities the Father has given Him — had He not suffered as He did.  (Comment: Again, being cultured is made or produced under controlled or artificial conditions, while becoming perfect is made through sufferings!)

Christ suffered as God in the flesh. This was a new experience for Him and for the Father. This trial was required of them in order to build a family. What a sacrifice THEY had to make! (Notice that word, “THEY” meaning God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ both suffered and not only Jesus Christ, they both became perfect in that process.)

Hebrews 5 elaborates on this point. “So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec” (verses 5-6). God the Father is the one who placed Christ in the role of High Priest.

Look what Christ had to endure in order to fully qualify for that position: “Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared” (verse 7). Did Christ suffer? He was on the edge! He was right against the wall! He was afraid of failure, clinging to His Father for the strength to survive! 

But look at the FRUITS of that suffering: “Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered” (verse 8). That experience changed Him. He came to a much deeper level of submission and obedience to His Father. He was always obedient, but we can easily imagine that at the end of it all — after going through it, and then sitting down at His Father’s side, fully realizing what He accomplished because He had done just what His Father said — He would have grown to have a much deeper, more profound respect for His Father’s master plan.

Christ was already God — He already had impeccable character. But in suffering as a human being, HE BUILT EVEN MORE CHARACTER-He was “being made perfect”! (verse 9, first part). Like coal put under intense pressure, His character was transformed into a diamond! Like raw ore heated to the melting point, it was refined into pure gold. That suffering qualified Him, in a way that no other experience ever could, to be a perfect High Priest to you and me! Thank God for that! 

“[H]e became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him” (verse 9, last part). Christ wrote our salvation by His experience! He was the first human ever to achieve it — to be perfected, completely finished in the perfect character of God! 

Christ suffered — but through that He learned — and He became perfect…  (Comment: Where now is becoming cultured here?)

This is the hardest point we need to realize: The life God called Christ to, He has also called us to. The trail that Christ blazed, as the Pioneer of our salvation, WE MUST FOLLOW. (repeat and put emphasis)

“For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also SUFFERED FOR US, LEAVING US AN EXAMPLE, THAT YE SHOULD FOLLOW HIS STEPS” (1 Peter 2:21). Here is WHY we were called: TO FOLLOW IN CHRIST’S STEPS, and TO SUFFER AS HE SUFFERED. 

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you” (1 Peter 4:12). Of course, we have our share of trials too, but God says we shouldn’t be alarmed by that. It never surprised Christ. That’s not to say He enjoyed going through them, but He never allowed those trials to get the best of Him. As Christ overcame those obstacles, He actually learned to REJOICE in the midst of them. “But REJOICE, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings…” (verse I3). We are partakers of Christ’s sufferings! (See also John 15:18, 20.)

Source: Royal Vision – March/April 2005 by Stephen Flurry and Joel Hilliker

We see here that Christ himself was made perfect through suffering. Yet Stephen is teaching God’s people otherwise. He wanted God’s people to become CULTURED! Again the word “culture” is defined as the TOTAL PRODUCT of human creativity and intellect and it can only be achieved under a controlled or artificial conditions.

Whereas, God defines being perfect through suffering – and it’s not in a controlled or artificial condition. Look at the NO CONTACT POLICY, they are creating an artificial and controlled condition for God’s people. What will be the expected outcome? Are they producing God’s character inside the Philadelphia Church of God? That’s a big NO! What they are producing are their own images from their human nature which is after Satan’s image and NOT the image of God!

We know that Christ was God in the flesh and had no sin in Him. So, what does it mean that Christ was made perfect through suffering. The word perfect means to BECOME COMPLETE. The Bible tells us that Christ as our high priest was touched with the feeling of our infirmities, yet was without sin. Christ could not do the work of a high priest and mediator unless he suffered like we as humans do. Now Christ goes before God the Father on our behalf. He has been made COMPLETE through suffering. Sufferings allowed Christ to perform His high priest duties.

So, we can be rest assured that if the captain of our salvation was made complete or perfect with sufferings we ought to take the same course. A true Christian’s suffering is right there for us for a purpose. It is to make us better Christian soldiers. We must endure hardness. One reason we must suffer is to show us that without Him we can do nothing.

And also, suffering helps us to have compassion on others. Those who never suffer won’t be of much help to others. They can’t have the empathy needed to encourage a fellow brethren under severe trials. Look at what Stephen has been fulfilling with that episode (emphasis mine in bold):

Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. (Luke 21:33-35)

Stephen Flurry further went deeper into the mire by giving another mind blowing twisting of scriptures in which he equated the word PERFECT in Matthew 5:48. His DECISION was to replace it with the word CULTURED.

We don’t know how long we’ll be here and so let’s try on a way to this project, or to this activity, let’s at least try to stop and see this particular sight for an hour or two. On today’s show I just want to emphasize HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR ALL OF US TO BECOME MORE CULTURED AS WE STRIVE TO BECOME MORE LIKE GOD. Jesus said, “Become you therefore perfect, even as your Father which in heaven is perfect.” HOW CULTURED IS GOD THE FATHER? Think about God’s taste when it comes to history, when it comes to music, when it comes to poetry. Look at the Bible itself, so much of it is poetry, so much of it is recorded in song. There’s quite a lot that the Bible has to say about music, about dance, about quality, about culture…

He even described how the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was a cultured man in his lifetime. Does he really know what he was saying? Did he not know that Mr. Churchill was himself a Druid?

Winston Churchill Druid.png

If Stephen wanted his listeners to become cultured like Queen Elizabeth 2 of Great Britain, then everybody in the PCG should also become a Druid. He subtly entitled his radio program, “Become You Therefore Cultured!”, but if anyone in the PCG will look into the history of how then Princess Elizabeth was initiated to the Welsh Druids, then becoming cultured also means that you have to become a Druid just like Mr. Churchill was.

So if anyone in the PCG wants to become perfect as Stephen is insinuating in his radio show, then PERFECTION can then be equated to how much of a DRUID you can become! So the title of the radio program should be renamed as “Become You Therefore Druids!” This is actually DOUBLE DEALING, i.e., an action characterized by treachery or deceit!

And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. (Daniel 8:23)

We know already that this king of fierce countenance or KING OF STRONG PRESENCE or CHARISMA is none other than Stephen Flurry and he understands dark sentences or DOUBLE DEALING.

And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. (Daniel 8:24)

Stephen being the last end Joshua is under Satan’s influence as it reads in Zechariah chapter 3:

And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. (Zechariah 3:1)

And with Satan influencing him, he is destroying God’s people by peace like the message about this being cultured.

And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. (Daniel 8:25)

One of the POLICY of this KING OF STRONG PRESENCE is to cause craft to prosper in his hands. The word “craft” means:

In Brown-Driver-Briggs Lexicon: DECEIT, TREACHERY; while in Strong’s Concordance: in the sense of DECEIVING; FRAUD, DECEIT, FEIGNED, SUBTLE, TREACHERY.

With Stephen’s “Become You Therefore Cultured” program, he is deceiving God’s people with his feigned or false appearance as a KING OF STRONG PRESENCE. Will Christ be indulging himself the same way Stephen is doing right now through the finest arts, manners and tastes?

In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. (John 4:31-35)

Christ’s meat is to finish God’s work, but Stephen would rather exercise his senses by great pleasure and enjoyment as he further justify himself. He would like to make the most out of his stay in Britain to become more cultured. That’s his justification why he was there in Britain – to satisfy his senses. He thought that by doing so, he is undergoing perfection.

Consider this, if Stephen is NOT PRACTICING TREACHERY with what he is declaring now, he should have read the whole chapter 5 of Matthew instead.

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. (Matthew 5:3-11)

Here’s a verse that has a prophetic overture to what is happening right now:

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. (Matthew 5:17)

God’s people may think that Jesus Christ is destroying God’s law through the NO CONTACT POLICY. People may be thinking that God is destroying Mr. Gerald Flurry but this is all happening because He wanted to fulfill the Ezekiel 4 siege. He wanted His own people to BECOME PERFECT through SUFFERING with the Ezekiel 4 siege!

For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:20)

God exhorted us to exceed the righteousness of the spiritual scribes and Pharisees inside the PCG. How can we do that?

For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth… What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faithBut Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness. (Romans 9:28, 30-31)

We can only exceed the righteousness of the spiritual scribes and Pharisees inside the PCG through RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH IS OF FAITH.

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. (Matthew 5:21-22)

Max Rumler, John Macdonald and his son Kirk use to call the PCG members in the Philippines, STUPID FILIPINOS. The next verses tell a lot about the folly of the PCG ministry.

It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. (Matthew 5:31-32)

The PCG is notoriously known among the other COG groups of separating the husband from the wife and vice versa over petty issues.

Now, one of the classic scripture that can best describe their contradicting action to fulfilling God’s law through the implementation of NO CONTACT POLICY can be read in the following verses:

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5:43-48)

Those were the things that Stephen could have said in his radio show to become perfect like our Father in heaven.

Everything that we know even if we become cultured will amount to nothing if we don’t develop God’s Holy righteous character in us. We are nothing. We are to become PERFECT like our Father in heaven is PERFECT, and that perfection process will have to be through SUFFERING and nothing else.

THE GLORY OF MOAB SHALL BE CONTEMNED

From the time Stephen posted in his Twitter account his decision to leave the  Jerusalem work on August 10, 2013, a specific prophecy written by the prophet Isaiah is coming to pass:

This is the word that the Lord hath spoken concerning Moab since that time. But now the Lord hath spoken, saying, Within three years, as the years of an hireling, and the glory of Moab shall be contemned, with all that great multitude; and the remnant shall be very small and feeble. (Isaiah 16:13-14)

Who or what is “Moab” in this prophecy? Is this referring to a geographical place in Jordan in the Middle East? To know the identity, let us consider the beginning of the story of Moab in Genesis chapter 19:

And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt. And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth: Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our fatherAnd they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their fatherAnd the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day. And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day. (Genesis 19:29-38)

Moab was a product of an incestual relationship of Lot’s firstborn daughter with his father. The purpose of this incestual relationship was to preserve the seed of their father since their mother has turned into a pillar of salt.

“Incest” in the dictionary means:

  • sexual relations between persons so closely related that they are forbidden by law or religion to marry.
  • the crime of sexual relations, cohabitation, or marriage between such persons.

Looking at this spiritually, the people in Philadelphia Church of God is having a spiritual intercourse with Mr. Gerald Flurry rather than with her Husband, Jesus Christ! That is SPIRITUAL INCEST! Although Mr. Gerald Flurry is God’s apostle, he is just like one of us, one of the brethren, yet the people in the PCG are choosing to set their affection with him rather than with their own Husband Jesus Christ. This is also the same prophecy written in the Song of Songs regarding the Shulamite lady having a great affection with the king (Gerald Flurry) rather than her beloved Jesus Christ! The PCG is looking too much on Mr. Flurry!

This is even attested by Mr. Gerald Flurry himself when he wrote about it in his Co-worker Letter dated May 6, 2014

I want to relate that history to something that happened to me recently. On January 4, I fainted on stage while giving a sermon. A few weeks before that incident, I told a regional director I BELIEVED SOME OF OUR MEMBERS LOOKED TO ME AND EVEN THE OTHER MINISTERS TOO MUCH. I wanted to make sure the ministers were helping the people be aware of that. However, before I had a chance to do anything about it, this incident occurred. I think that was God’s way of saying that He agreed with me. I didn’t necessarily like the way He demonstrated that, but it shows me that He motivated what I was thinking.

We need to remember that a minister is just a puny little man. Of course, God works through men, but we are just men. (pp. 1-2)

The Philadelphia Church of God in Edmond (the firstborn daughter) has committed a spiritual incest with Mr. Gerald Flurry thus producing Stephen, whom God calls Moab in this last end. Moab means “of his father.” Remember that the purpose of this spiritual incestual relationship is to preserve the seed of his father who is getting old. Now there’s a younger daughter who also committed a spiritual incest with Mr. Flurry, i.e., the PCG in UK that gave birth to Brad Macdonald whom God calls Ammon.

For emphasis, in Bible prophecy, Stephen is called by the name Moab because he looks too much on his father. As for those people who follow him and do the same thing, God calls them “the daughters of Moab” (Isaiah 16:2). While as for Brad, he is being identified as Ammon because he wanted the PCG members to look too much on their ministers, and those who do, God calls them, “the children of Ammon.” Whereas, his father John Macdonald, is the influential “CHIEF of the children of Ammon” in Daniel’s prophecy (Daniel 11:41)

Within three years, as the years of an hireling, and the glory of Moab shall be contemned

The word “contemned” in Strong’s Concordance can also mean “seem vile”; whereas, “vile” in the dictionary means “abominably wicked; shameful or evil; disgusting.” By substituting the other meaning to the verse, thus we can read it this way:

This is the word that the Lord hath spoken concerning Stephen since that time. But now the Lord hath spoken, saying, Within three years, as the years of an hireling, and the glory of Stephen shall seem abominably wicked, shameful, evil and disgusting…

After THREE YEARS from his decision to leave the Jerusalem work on August 10, 2013, the glory of Stephen seem abominably wicked, shameful, evil and so disgusting as he flaunt his foolish assumption of Matthew 5:48 on air with his August 18, 2016Become You Therefore Cultured” episode.

Moreover, if we look at the word “contemned” in the dictionary, it can also mean, “to view with contempt; despise”

Look at how the GLORY of Stephen Flurry is being despised by an infamous anti-Armstrong blog site (emphasis mine in bold):

Philadelphia Church of God: KPCG Radio Station A Complete Flop As It Fails To Excite The Edmond Neighbors

In the most recent edition of The Philadelphian an article appears written by Gerald Flurry’s grandson Grant Turgeon about PCG’s fledgling radio station KPCG.FM. This article contains some very revealing comments by Stephen Flurry who inadvertently admits that their radio station project is a complete flop which unsurprisingly is being listened to only by a handful of members:

For those who don’t know last year PCG established a new radio station KPCG.FM, which began broadcasting from the Edmond compound using a low-power transmitter that covered a 6 or 7 mile local radius.

Soon after the station began broadcasting the obvious potential for self-promotion was quickly realised by the PCG elite wannabes: Malone, Hilliker, Davis, etc. who proceeded to host their own radio shows.

Since that time PCG has sunk literally hundreds of thousands of dollars into this project including the development of two broadcasting studios, one in Edmond and one in the new UK campus at Edstone. Each of these studios is fitted out with professional grade equipment and operated and staffed by PCG employees. For those who do not live in the Edmond antenna footprint an online service through Soundcloud was developed to allow access to the programming from further afield.

After all this investment, daily programming, cost and effort what has been the outcome? According to the article only around 300 people a day on average are actually listening to it! By their admission of those who tune in the overwhelming majority are PCG members!

In Turgeon’s article uncle Stephen’s comments appear in the final paragraph. In it he makes some revealing comments:

“[G]oing in, we were aiming to reach an audience beyond our members and co-workers. That may take time.” Mr. Flurry said. “Right now, we have a very supportive audience that consists mostly of members and co-workers. But we have been advertising the station on TV here in the UK, so hopefully we will see our audience expand as we head into our second year of broadcasting.”

That statement is classic PCG-speak which can be translated for outsiders as follows:

Statement

“Going in, we were aiming to reach an audience beyond our members and co-workers”.

Translation

“The whole point of the radio station was to reach people outside the PCG with our message”.

Statement

“Right now, we have a very supportive audience that consists mostly of members and co-workers”.

Translation

“We have completely failed to reach anybody outside the PCG. The only people who are listening are hard-core members who feel they have to support everything the PCG does”.

Statement

“But we have been advertising the station on TV here in the UK”,

Translation

“Although we have no idea about advertising and marketing or even possess one iota of basic business sense, we are never going to admit we made a mistake.  Subsequently we will continue to drive this project to its bitter end. Even though it is obvious we don’t know what we’re doing and the station is failing miserably we are going to pursue this even if it means throwing hundreds of thousands more down the drain in the process. We are so delusional and so out of touch with how modern media operates all we can come up with as a solution is the unbelievably stupid idea of advertising the radio station using the most rapidly declining yet expensive form of media on earth (TV) to promote another form of media (radio) whose terminal decline set in years ago”.

Statement

“(S)o hopefully we will see our audience expand as we head into our second year of broadcasting”.

Translation

“Again, we have no idea what we are doing, we don’t really know anything about marketing, trends, media etc, we just hope it’s all going to work out for us as a simple article of faith.  If we are wrong we will never admit it, we will just pursue this project until we lose interest, then blame its demise on the members for their lack of support and inherent spiritual problems. Not to worry after all it’s is just tithe money and church morale.”

In the link posted above in the first paragraph is the article after it has been sanitized by PCG.  The original quote that is no longer in the article is this screen shot:

PCG now has to hide the fact that Stephen Flurry admitted they have not accomplished what they set out to do.

What Grant Turgeon wrote about in his article from the pcog.org website is actually a description of a specific prophecy fulfilling this expression: “with all that great multitude; and the remnant shall be very small and feeble.” He may have removed a critical paragraph in it, yet someone else was able to capture it before he deleted it.

To better understand the prophetic phrase, let us define some words:

“multitude” in Strong’s Concordance is H1995 “hamon” which can mean, “wealth, abundance, noise, riches, sounding, tumult”

remnant: H7605 “shear” – a remainder, residue

In the dictionary, remainder means; a part or portion that is left, as after use, subtraction, expenditure, the passage of time, etc.

The word “very” is defined in Brown-Driver Briggs Lexicon as “little worth.” The word “feeble” is actually from two Hebrew words – “lo” H3808 (without) and “kabbiyr” H3524 (power)

To paraphrase the thought, we have:

“with all that great wealth, abundance, riches to produce the noise and sounding; the portion that is left, as after use, subtraction, expenditure, the passage of time shall be little worth of few and without power and strength.”

With that in mind, let’s consider again what was written about Stephen’s pet project, the Trumpet Daily Radio Show:

podcasts_trumpet_daily

Since that time PCG has sunk literally hundreds of thousands of dollars into this project including the development of two broadcasting studios, one in Edmond and one in the new UK campus at Edstone. Each of these studios is fitted out with professional grade equipment and operated and staffed by PCG employees. For those who do not live in the Edmond antenna footprint an online service through Soundcloud was developed to allow access to the programming from further afield.

After all this investment, daily programming, cost and effort what has been the outcome? According to the article only around 300 people a day on average are actually listening to it! By their admission of those who tune in the overwhelming majority are PCG members!

Notice that Stephen poured in so much wealth and resource to the “low-power transmitter that covered a 6 or 7 mile local radius.” Yet, did he achieve what he expected? Let’s read again Isaiah’s prophecy concerning Moab (Stephen):

This is the word that the Lord hath spoken concerning Moab since that time. But now the Lord hath spoken, saying, Within three years, as the years of an hireling, and the glory of Moab shall be contemned, with all that great multitude; and the remnant shall be very small and feeble. (Isaiah 16:13-14)

Paraphrasing it using the defined words and the comments we quoted, we can then read it this way:

This is the word that the Lord hath spoken concerning Stephen since that time. But now the Lord hath spoken, saying, Within three years, as the years of an hireling, and the glory of Stephen shall seem abominably wicked, shameful, evil, disgusting and it will be despised, with all that great wealth, abundance, riches he invested to produce the noise from the radio program through “advertising, marketing, trends, media, etc.” while expecting the sounding tumult of the crowd that should follow him; the portion that is left, as after use of that great wealth – “after all this investment, daily programming, cost and effort” – that upon subtraction of all the expenditures through the passage of time shall be little worth of few “only around 300 people a day on average are actually listening to it!” because it is without power and strength” considering radio was in “terminal decline set in years ago.”

Within THREE YEARS from August 10, 2013 when Stephen left Jerusalem up to August 18, 2016 when he aired in his Trumpet Daily Radio ShowBecome You Therefore Cultured,” his glory sure seem abominably wicked, shameful, evil, disgusting and greatly despised in God’s eyes.

FOR AT THE TIME APPOINTED THE END SHALL BE

Twelve years ago, on September 4, 2004, Mr. Gerald Flurry gave a sermon entitled, “The Tree of Life and God’s House.” He prophesied of a Gentile work that would help the Philadelphia Church of God to finish God’s work.

“God’s gonna use, I believe, there’s certain symbolism there to tell us, He’s gonna use carnal minded men to help this work done. If that’s what we need, we’ll get the help. If it’s like building God’s house or doing this work, God will give us the help, even if He has to take a carnal minded man and anoint him – He’ll do it because He already said He’s gonna do it, ‘I will raise up the ruins as in the days of old’. God forbid that we should not believe that! God forbid….”

Do we believe that? Do we believe that God is now using the Gentiles to help build His spiritual house in this last end?

For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha. What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. (Romans 9:28-30)

God’s work in this last end is described as the righteousness which is of faith. This righteousness of faith is comparable to what Noah has achieved.

By faith Noah being warned of God of things not seen as yet moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world and became the heir of the righteousness which is by faith. (Hebrews 11:7)

Just like Noah, the Remembrancers has prepared an ark to the saving of God’s house and by faith, they built the ARK of God Foundation by which they are condemning those people inside God’s Church around the world who alienate themselves to God through the pagan customs that were introduced to them. And that is how they also became the heir of the righteousness which is by faith like Noah. And what end result are they expecting to achieve?

Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in former years. And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 3:4-5)

Actually the whole vision in Malachi 3 tells us of the story of why the Book of Remembrance was written by the messenger of the covenant.

Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return? (Malachi 3:7)

Verse 7 is speaking of God’s Church in this last end, the Philadelphia Church of God where they were asking, “Wherein shall we return?” or “What have we done wrong?” In the next verse we can read what offense they did to God.

Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. (Malachi 3:8)

We know without a shadow of a doubt that this is indeed referring to the PCG as they made ROBBERS CAVE their landmark, and they are very proud of it. They are guilty of robbing God.

Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. (Malachi 3:9)

Look at Oklahoma, it has become the EARTHQUAKE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD. The Oklahoma state is being cursed because it is the home of the PCG ministers who have robbed God.

In God’s eyes, the whole organization of the Philadelphia Church of God has robbed Him. Looked at what they did to Jerusalem, they left it desolate. Even Ariella Bernstein of Jerusalem Foundation became suspicious over the intention of the Remembrancers to beautify it, because of what the PCG did to the Children’s Playground. The PCG has told a lie which anyone can verify even in their pcog.org website under the “About” tab and the “Armstrong International Cultural Foundation” section. Here’s what is written about their work in Jerusalem:

Armstrong International Cultural Foundation

The foundation has sponsored several activities in Jerusalem. In 2006, the foundation began supplying volunteers and aid to Dr. Eilat Mazar’s ground-breaking excavation of King David’s palace in Jerusalem. It has also helped refurbish Liberty Bell Park in the heart of the city, a project Herbert W. Armstrong had started.

Oh really? They helped refurbish the Liberty Bell Park? So why is it that when the Remembrancers went there last 2015 and this year (2016), all we saw was a box pile of sand with their plaque full of lies on it. Where did the tithes and offerings go?

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 3:10-12)

Notice that verses 11 and 12 are included in the conditional promise of God IF they will bring all the tithes into the storehouse as stated in verse 10. And for what purpose? “THAT THERE MAY BE MEAT IN MINE HOUSE

Can you find any STRONG MEAT in God’s house today? Is the PCG receiving NEW REVELATIONS after they left the Jerusalem work? The Eternal has chosen Jerusalem, yet they left it in exchange for a bowl of soup in Edstone. As a result, they have been subjected to a severe spiritual famine. Yet what are their thoughts about it?

Your words have been stout against me, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee? Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts? And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered. (Malachi 3:13-15)

Have we not seen such a thing wherein the PCG ministers call the proud people in their midst, happy or blessed? Have we not seen even those “that work wickedness are set up” in the ministry? And also, have we not seen those that tempt God are even delivered or saved from being kicked out of the Church? We have all witnessed those terrible crisis inside the PCG. So what do you think God has done to correct such a ghastly situation? Let’s read it on the next verse.

Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not. (Malachi 3:16-18)

The Book of Remembrance has been written for us “discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.”

Which group do you really belong to? The RIGHTEOUS or the WICKED? Do you belong to those that serve Him or to those that serve Him not?

Well, actually, this Book of Remembrance started with the fulfillment of the second 1,150 days

Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? (Daniel 8:13)

The first fulfillment of these two saints speaking to each other were Mr. Gerald Flurry and Mr. John Amos, while again, the second one was fulfilled by the two witnesses.

And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed… And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. (Daniel 8:14, 26)

That Book of Remembrance has been made available to the public through our website when it was initially launched on October 29, 2013 which is the end of the second 1,150 days of the 2,300 days prophesied in Daniel chapter 8. That date, October 29 is the annual celebration of Cyrus the Great Day. That’s the appointed time of the end of the 2,300 days prophecy.

And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be. (Daniel 8:19)

From that appointed time, the sanctuary or God’s Church was being cleansed again the second time (emphasis mine in bold).

March 11 this year was a critical day. I think it reinforced the importance of the end of that 1150 days, and reminded us – AS WE ARE PRONE TO FORGET…

That 1150 days was a nightmare: people turning from God and the truth being cast to the ground. Then God supplied the ANSWER – in the form of an URGENT MESSAGE!

From: Page 1, Philadelphia News May 2011

All the people in the PCG are turning away from God AGAIN by abandoning the Jerusalem work and replaced it with the Edstone work. They are DOING THE SAME THING as what the WCG had done by casting the truth to the ground – the PCG ministers are not telling the members about the history of Irish Dance, Mother’s Day and cremation which are outright paganism. Although God has already supplied the ANSWER in the form of an URGENT MESSAGE through the Book of Remembrance, yet the ministers wanted that book to be BURNED.

Moreover, those PCG ministers are also causing REBELLION TO DESTROY THEMSELVES through the NO CONTACT POLICY. With all these, God saw the need to cleanse the sanctuary or His Church ONCE AGAIN because they have forgotten AGAIN, the reason why the Book of Remembrance has to be written.
